Storms do not bother me because I am learning to sail my own ship. Louisa May Alcott was a famous author who lived in the United States.

How are you doing now that we’ve been in the new year for a few weeks? With the good energy of fresh beginnings, do you feel brave, balanced, and bright? Or are you privately afraid and intimidated by the huge responsibilities of a new beginning? If you’re looking for an excuse right now, you’re not alone. Are you looking for a new job? Should I inform my partner that I wish to make some changes? Is it possible for me to devote time, energy, and resources to my own personal well-being and spiritual development? Who do you think it is, me? If this describes you, it’s time to restore your vital sense of personal power.

There are a variety of reasons why you may have relinquished your own authority, your ownership of the true, authentic self, over time. Your parents had a greater understanding of how you should live. Your lecturers expected you to think and act in accordance with their beliefs. You didn’t want to face or challenge someone else’s hegemony. Whatever has caused you to lose touch with your unique power, now is the moment to rediscover the priceless gift of understanding who you are and what you desire.

The seat of self-esteem and personal strength is the third chakra, which is the wellspring of will, purpose, and action in your body. The third chakra is located in the solar plexus, midway between the navel and the sternum, and refers to the metabolic fire that nourishes and gives you vitality. Your energy is harnessed and converted into action from this place. You may feel doubtful, hesitant, and lacking in self-confidence if your third energy center is weakened. You might be tired all the time, unable to follow through, or constantly feel like a victim of circumstance, a pushover. Personal power loss prevents you from interacting effectively and strongly in the world, or even from simply showing up for life each day.

You feel more capable of taking action when your third energy center is strong and healthy. Your motives are quite obvious. You don’t have to demand or aggressively seize authority from others to assert your personal power. You have power because you know who you are and believe you are capable of achieving your goals.

To reclaim your personal authority, follow these three steps:

  1. Cleanse your spirit of negative energy.

Allow yourself to let go of the past. Look for anything or anyone in your life who is a threat to your personal or spiritual strength. Old messages from your parents or other authority figures, echoes of self-doubt and discouragement, and ideas that you are unworthy or undeserving of love are all examples of this. People that put you down or “love” you through control or abuse are included. To cure yourself and the world, you must use your personal strength.

  1. Choose a course of action.

Energy will come back to you once you’ve shed all of your old damaging thought and behavior habits. Your inner strength and might will be recharged, and you’ll be ready to take on new challenges. It’s time to make plans for the next chapter of your life. What is it that you actually desire? To help you find your aims and ambitions, combine your journaling and meditation activities with walks in nature, adequate rest, and appropriate self-care. Maintain a firm focus on your newly reclaimed personal authority.

  1. Start taking action.

Take the steps necessary to achieve your goals now that you’ve let go of everything that was holding you back and decided what your soul wants to achieve. You have the strength, determination, and self-awareness to succeed. Allow yourself to be propelled ahead by the thrill of reclaiming your personal power, spiritual energy, and inner strength. You’re ready to make your goals a reality.

It is never selfish to use your personal power in the service of the light. Any activity you take will contribute to elevate your frequency and, as a result, the planet’s vibration. You are putting your personal power to the highest and best use when you act from a place of love, being your genuine self, and living the life you came here to live.
